HBO's DEADWOOD Movie Has Officially Started Shooting! Here Are the Cast and Story Details
After years of talk and development, HBO Films has official started shooting the Deadwood movie! We are finally going to get a proper ending to this incredible western story 12 years after the series was cancelled.
Game of Thrones helmer Daniel Minahan will direct the film from a script written by creator David Milch, and the story is set to take place 10 years after the events of the series.
The cast for the film brings back Ian McShane (Al Swearengen), Timothy Olyphant (Seth Bullock), Molly Parker (Alma Ellsworth), Paula Malcomson (Trixie), John Hawkes (Sol Star), Anna Gunn (Martha Bullock), Dayton Callie (Charlie Utter), Brad Dourif (Doc Cochran), Robin Weigert (“Calamity” Jane Canary), William Sanderson (E.B. Farnum), Kim Dickens (Joanie Stubbs) and Gerald McRaney (George Hearst).
The film also includes a new cast member, Jade Pettyjohn, who will play a character named Caroline, but we don’t have any details on the characters role in the story.
Here’s the synopsis that HBO officially released for the film:
The indelible characters of the series are reunited after 10 years to celebrate South Dakota’s statehood. Former rivalries are reignited, alliances are tested and old wounds are reopened, as all are left to navigate the inevitable changes that modernity and time have wrought.
The Deadwood series was nominated for 28 Emmys during its run and it ended up winning eight of them.
It took a lot of work to make this Deadwood movie happen. The fact they were able to actually get the entire cast back together is super impressive. But, they pulled it off, and I can’t wait to see it! In the meantime, I’ll be rewatching the series in preparation.
Are you excited to hear that the Deadwood movie is actually happening!?
